:) thanks

Though i did do a stupid. Totally forgot to remmber about my latex allergy :( its not in my records and i haven't had an issue with it since i was younger (not an issue with the gallbladder because the surgery area was already latex free). So yeah, a couple of hours later, my back was itchin' good. Had to remove the latex-y ones and replace them with the non-latex-y ones. Good thing i decided not to wait the full 48 hours before removing them :blink:

I did, however, remember my issues with neosporin and made sure i got the right antibiotic.

M decided it should be in pasta with other lasagnas. I thought about making copies and putting recipes in more than one place but ......too much work. I got some cute binders and the only recipes in these will be the ones I know we like. A pocket page in each section for recipes I want to try but haven't earned the right to be in the book.

I had a friend that defrosted a kitten. A feral cat had 2 kittens somehow on top of the wood pile - in a window box over it or something. the kittens fell down into the wood pile and got stuck. My friend came home and realized something had happened. She dug them out and one was frozen & dead. She brought them in and warmed them up and the dead one came back to life. She was always a bit uncoordinated and odd but a nice house cat.

You could get the colored foil stars and if you put the dish in Mexican food designate a color star for pasta (use the other colors for your other food groups like rice, etc) then there's no need to duplicate the recipe (though the binders sound adorable and you are worthy).

I tempted the Celiac God/dess and (shame on me) had a falafel yesterday. Bad Loey!!! I KNOW it has wheat in it and it came from a fast food place called Pockets so I also know it was cross contaminated. Don't have the runs (though I'm running to the bathroom frequently) but the roids are out in full force and now I have to get dressed for the NYE party. Now I have to decide if I should wear depends under my pretty new (p)leather leggings. When will I learn that cheating death does not make me invincible?!

I hope you all have a wonderful NYE be it spent quietly or at a party. Drive safe - remember all the other fools on the road. Our party is just up the hill but Superman (Rob, my DH to anyone new to the forum or our thread) will drive me there. Not as physical as I want to be (exercise wise ;) ;) ) and we had our first significant icy snow so we'll drive.

BTW, I do hope to make it to either DC or Leesburg this summer if the $ holds out. It's scary without Rob having an income but we have enough for at least a year and he's pretty savvy with the stock market (after a very hard lesson 20 years ago with margin calls). If/when we get down there I want to meet my psillies from the area. G-eff we talked about it in the past before I got even sicker and I'm hoping Vince isn't far from there. I REALLY want to meet all my dear psillies. Again, Gluten Free section reserved for the party on the 19th in Jersey and the extended forecast doesn't predict snow until that Sunday (party is on Saturday). I don't need to know in advance as it's a buffet.

OK, Superman is getting ready for the party and I'm still in my robe.

Much Love,

Loey

two moles removed and 9 stiches later in my back....

More gentle hugs to you. I'm allergic to most band-aids and adhesives. I was not a pretty sight at the hospital when all the tape, etc came off (plus I had Shrek hands due to retaining fluid).

I SO wish Rob hadn't sent Tony a pic of me on life support. Talk about trying to get his attention (during finals). Oh, if I had it to do over again I wouldn't have coddled him (I swear Kareng- it's continuing to bite me in my sizable arse). He gets back from Israel on Thursday and I've been given the go ahead to go to JFK as long as we stop every hour for me to stretch and I wear my back support.

OK, the NYE party has started and we're going to head out in a few minutes. Hopefully the Ambrosia came out well. It's become my signature dish in the neighborhood for parties. Easy to make as well.

More love,

Loey :wub: :wub: :wub:

Well, dunno if Re-peep is gonna make it. Dovey is a terrible mom. Got the wee one out of the nest waay too early. Leaves her alone to run for treats. Knocks her away while scratching, and I came home from dog-sitting, right at dusk, to fin Re-peep alone in the pen, cold, bloody, abandoned. Of course as soon as I went in the pen all the big girls came barrelling out of the coop -- on top of Re-peep. I grabbed her as quick as I could and wrapped her in my hands to warm up. Not sure if she's missing an eye, or just got pecked near it, too much blood to tell.

Decided the warmest spot is under her mom, and she should be pretty quiet over night. Had to wait a long time to get them back in the coop, and when I put Re-peep in under mom she scratched her out and pecked at her. Finally got her settled and the chick underneath her, but she could be squashing her for all I know.

Going out in the pirate's boat tonight to sit in the Sound and watch the fireworks from the Space Needle. I guess when we get back tomorrow I'll see if the peeper is alive, and decide if I need to raise her inside. It wouldn't be any fun for her for a number of reasons so I'm hoping she survives the first week until she's a little bit more able to defend herself.

Glad you got home safely. My thoughts have been with you and your family. Isn't Cranbury lovely? I still would love to read your sermon.

Happy New Year to you and the family,

Love,

It was recorded, but there was some tech difficulties so I do not yet know if they were able to salvage it or not. I was hoping to use it for my resume too... :(

Ah geeze -_- Sorry about the bebehs. And rest that back!!! (I also vote chiro... know some peeps don't like 'em but mine got me walking again after a slipped disk broke me, so I'm partial ;) )

I'm in agreement about chiro. Just started seeing one last week in my PCP's office. After 2 adjustments I felt amazing. Of course I undid it all at the party by sitting on a soft, sinking sofa most of the night. Can't sleep so I'm heading down to ice it. can't wait until Wednesday when I see her again. She also uses a tens machine with moist heat on top of it. I swear she's a miracle worker.

Love,

Loey

A happy, sleepy New Year to all!

Re-peep is still with us, and her mom was sitting on her early this morning. I'll bring her out some warm sugar water in a bit.

Fireworks from the boat were fun, and really really cold. Fortunately we had warm kitties to come home to.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

It's been a rough year.( Brian being on disability 3 separate times. Really hurts the pocketbook) So glad the holidays are over.( I am a bit of a Scrooge, I'm afraid. Could really do without all the stress) Now if I can just get through the winter (Absolutely HATE cold and snow!)But......looking forward to what the new year will bring. Very optimistic that it will be an awesome year!

Best wishes to all. Healing thoughts to all ailing psillies....including feathery ones.♥

I keep thinking it's Sunday. Glad it's a Tuesday cuz Tony comes home Thursday (YAY!!!)

Overdid it yesterday and then stayed at the party until the end. My back is totally !@#$%^! I see my chiro tomorrow and hopefully she'll work her magic - I REALLY want to go to the Airport Thursday.

Love to you all,

Loey

P.S. I think Re-peep (and Jessss) should be our mascots that ANYTHING is possible with love & faith.

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
